Things to consider when using Carbon 60: Sources of information.
Greetings and welcome, Dr. Max MacCloud, AKA The Nutrition Ninja Doc, here to talk more about Carbon 60, which I consider to be potentially the most significant health breakthrough I've ever seen.
To get started, I want to make it clear that, although I am medically trained and have practiced for 40 years, this is not meant to be medical advice. This information is for educational purposes only.
There has been a lot of interest and activity in the 'Carbon 60' community over the past couple of years. The number of users and companies making and marketing Carbon 60 products has grown tremendously.
99+% of those "researching" the use of C60 are seeking health benefits.
As with anything, there are pros and cons associated with the growth of such a trend. The word trend is a bit premature at this point. As far as I can tell, there's only a very tiny percentage of the population that has even heard about C60 thus far.
Obviously, those consuming Carbon 60 in various forms, are doing so for 'research purposes' and to potentially derive various health benefits as reported in the now-famous U. of Paris rat study published in 2012.
In the past, I've pointed out that none of the current leaders in the C60 community have any medical training. That was in no way meant to downplay their outstanding contributions or the value of what they have to say; it was simply a statement of fact. A fact that is particularly relevant since I'd guess that 99+% of all those 'researching' the use of C60 are seeking health benefits AND virtually everyone discussing and promoting C60 is pointing to and discussing the reported and potential health benefits.
I've been in the health field for over 40 years, and a pet peeve of mine is when people lacking appropriate education & training make inappropriate & misleading statements. Self-training is valid. However, those relying primarily on self-training run a significant risk of going down erroneous paths due to significant holes in their knowledge base.
Contrary to what the public might believe, conventional physicians know next to NOTHING about 'health,' they're trained in 'disease.'
I love the access to information that the internet provides. However, I also realize how easy it is for those without sufficient depth of knowledge about a given topic (health & nutrition in this case) to be led astray. So, all I want to say about that at this point is to suggest that you seriously consider the training & experience of the person providing information.
Sadly, and inappropriately, some have taken my comments in a negative light or felt that this was a personal attack. Neither is the case. I've just seen way TOO many self-appointed experts make claims that were later proven to be dead wrong and lead to unexpected negative health consequences. To be clear, that goes TRIPLE for those who should know better, and ARE trained in the field. There have been way too many 'accepted experts with appropriate credentials and training' who have turned out to be dead wrong on numerous fundamental topics. Conventional medicine is an excellent case in point. Contrary to what the public might believe, conventional physicians know next to NOTHING about 'health,' they're trained in 'disease.' Their education is controlled by Big Pharma, which is probably the biggest purveyor of false & misleading information on the planet.
I encourage people to use caution and do their research both directly and by consulting with experts on both sides of a given topic. It is also essential to understand as much as possible, a given 'expert's' training, perspective, and agenda. What is their background, both academic, professionally, and life experiences? How do those things apply to the topic at hand? Do they have an ulterior motive for providing the information?
Full disclosure re my ulterior motives: My life's mission is to help people overcome their health challenges and achieve their health goals. A secondary motivation is to sell those people on various products I've created to help them achieve their health goals. The revenue helps me to achieve my mission.
